Pear Blossoms

Posted by Picasa
I am determined to capture and enjoy every moment of spring that I can.

This is a pear tree that bears a hard, sandy pear that I think be might be good for pickling. Someone explained that was the name "Sand Pear". Can't really find much on them. They are pretty to look at but difficult to enjoy . . . so this year I will experiment and see if I can't find a good use. Maybe poached with a raspberry coulee, or a pear galette with toffee.

If you have information or ideas, let me know!
